This well-kept village is located on the northwest edge of Geneva Lake, and offers a quieter alternative to the bustle of Lake Geneva. Williams Bay is just under 3 square miles and gives residents wonderful lakeside options for the community to share, including swimming at Williams Bay beach, nature trails and waterfront dining and cafes.
The 231-acre KISHWAUKETOE NATURE CONSERVANCY is open year-round and maintained by resident volunteers, who maintain a community space filled with native trees, grasses and wildflowers. The KNC is a community jewel with 4 miles of trails and regularly scheduled events including an annual 5K Run/Walk.
A central feature of Williams Bay is the world-renowned Yerkes Observatory, which houses the world’s largest refracting telescope. This village is also home to Aurora University’s George Williams College.
